5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is converted into 5-HTP,which in turn is converted into serotonin,an important neurotransmitter that is associated with the regulation of sleep,mood,appetite,aggression,temperature,sexual behavior and pain sensation. Supplementation with 5-HTP is preferable to supplementing with L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is derived naturally from the seeds of the Griffonia plant,where L-tryptophan is produced synthetically or through bacterial fermentation. 5-HTP crosses into the brain more readily than L-tryptophan,as it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier without competing with other amino acids for uptake. Unlike L-tryptophan,5-HTP cannot be shunted into niacin or protein production.
